This may not qualify as falling below the standard of care and your injury is neither serious enough or permanent to justify a hugely costly malpractice case if you obtain your records and have a malpractice lawyer re Jew them, you'd know for sure. Be happy to talk to you.

What you described isn't enough to pursue a claim. It costs tens of thousands of dollars to prosecute a malpractice case, and that means that only the most seriously injured people have a large enough claim to warrant it. It's unfair because it means that substandard care is most often left un-redressed, but that's the system we have. Sorry we can't be much help in this instance.
Please be sure to mark the best answer to your question. My answers are general and do not form an attorney-client relationship. I'm happy to talk to prospective clients in my areas of concentration and geographical location.
